About Sheffield Safeguarding Children Board
News about how we are changing
As a result of the Children and Social Work Act 2017, the Sheffield Safeguarding Children Board will be replaced by the Sheffield Children Safeguarding Partnership. The Local safeguarding Arrangements Plan sets out how the new arrangements will work in Sheffield.
This is our Vision
- Every child and young person in Sheffield should be able to grow up free from the fear of abuse or neglect.
- We are committed to improving the safety of all children and young people in Sheffield. If children are not safe, they cannot be healthy, happy, achieve or reach their full potential. We recognise and promote the concept that keeping children safe is everybody’s responsibility.
The joint leaders of the Partnership are:
- Sheffield City Council
- South Yorkshire Police
- Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group
